The Clovis/Curry County and the Roosevelt County chambers of commerce are teaming up with Cannon Air Force Base personnel to kick off a new program Friday — “Adopt An Air Commando.”

Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce said the program is a cooperative effort between Clovis, Portales and Cannon leadership in figuring out ways to connect new personnel at Cannon to local families.

“(It’s) just so they can try to have someone that can help them with basic (local) information or things to do,” Kos said.

Base officials will pass information about the program to airmen — and their families, if applicable —
